Before you go to bed Saturday night, make sure to adjust all your clocks forward.

There are only two times of the year that you adjust your clocks for daylight saving time. We got to Fall Back in November, giving us that extra hour of sleep we desperately wanted. Now is the not-so-fun time change, we must Spring Forward, which means we lose an hour. Sunday will only be 23 hours long, instead of the usual 24 hours.

Our clocks will go from 1:59 a.m. to 3 a.m.This is good news for those of you who work the night shift.  Also, if you enjoy the outdoors and sunlight, we are about to get into your favorite time of the year. We get long days in the sun and I can drive home at 7pm when it’s still light out.

This might be the last time we Floridians will participate in daylight saving time. Lawmakers are still working to have us join Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and most of Arizona who don’t spring forward or fall back. Washington and California are working toward this same goal, too. The “Sunshine Protection Act” was introduced to the House of Representatives in January of 2021 but has not been signed into law.

According to ABC Action News, daylight saving time was made to make better use of daylight. The Department of Transportation says that it saves energy, prevents deadly traffic accidents and reduces crime.
